Welcome to the launch of EatWisconsin

Welcome to the launch of EatWisconsin. I have been on hiatus, busy with the usual summer activities and house projects, but I am back, reinvigorated, and ready to post. On the day that I decided to get started up again, the Milwaukee Brewers and Klement’s announced they are adding a 5th racing sausage at Miller Park. As the Journal announced “Chorizo, a tasty Mexican sausage, will join fellow meaty friends Hot Dog, Bratwurst, Polish and Italian as the newest member of the Klement's Famous Racing Sausages team.” For years the sausages were the only thing worth cheering for at Brewer games. While the play on the field over the past year or so has produced some new excitement, the sausages get the crowd on their feet.

Some predictions, facts, and observations:

1. The Chorizo will win its inaugural race.
2. Right-wing talk show hosts and bloggers will say that this is being done for politically correct reasons because of the ongoing immigration debate.
3. I guarantee that there will be no fewer than 5 jokes by the same conservatives questioning whether the Chorizo is a legal resident or an illegal immigrant. That’s just the kind of pricks they are. They are never happy unless they can paint things in racial terms.
4. How much do you want to bet that 75 percent of the fans at Miller Park will ask “What in the hell is a chorizo?” the first time the sausage lines up to race.
5. Chorizo goes great with Mussels. For an easy recipe sauté a couple of chopped shallots, a chopped jalapeno, and some chorizo. Add a can of chopped tomatoes, a ½ bottle of Mexican beer, and a bunch of mussels. Cook until they open, salt and pepper to taste, garnish with some lime and chopped cilantro. Serve with crusty bread.
6. Does Miller Park even sell Chorizo? If not, they really should. Chorizo taco stand anyone?
